Discover the peace and clarity of your own mind.
Discover how to gain inner peace by meditating on the mind itself. When we experience the vast, clear nature of our mind, we begin to see how our thoughts and feelings are like clouds in the sky, simply passing through our mind with no real power to make us feel bad. If we don’t follow them, they simply disappear.
“Happiness and suffering are states of mind, so their main causes cannot be found outside the mind. If we want to be truly happy and free from suffering, we must learn how to control our mind.” —Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
In this workshop we will discover how to experience inner peace by meditating on the mind itself. This sublime meditation on the clarity of the mind is deeply relaxing and empowering. Derived from the Buddhist Mahamudra Tradition, these meditations lead you on a voyage of exploration of your mind through which you can discover your own inner potential for lasting peace and happiness.
“If you realize your own mind you will become a Buddha; you should not seek Buddhahood elsewhere.” —Buddha
Join us to learn this simple yet profound meditation and learn how to experience your potential for peace and happiness. By accessing the pure, clear nature of our mind, we gain the freedom to respond to our thoughts and feelings in the most constructive way possible.
